A Handicap Overlooked

I never remember anyone’s name

Except for those important

Does this make me a terrible person?

I tell myself, “Well, try.”

I try

For a fraction of a second

In one ear and out the other


“Hey Josh!”

“Hey… You.”

“Hi Josh!”

“Hey… Bro.”

I’m not listening again

I can’t help it.

Is it a problem with my head?

I feel bad

So in advance if I forget

Please don’t be mad

If I may ask

What is your name again?

I simply forgot.
